Local identity and well- known Australian entertainer, Vic Simms, gave a lively talk to visitors at the Laperouse Museum. Vic spoke about growing up in La Perouse and displayed ochre, boomerangs, spears and clap sticks. In 2001, Vic won a Deadly Award for his outstanding achievements as an entertainer. His LP recording, The Loner, is recognised as one of the greatest collections of protest songs produced in Australia. More recently he featured at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games opening ceremony concerts, at Woodford’s Indigenous Festival, and gave the Welcome to Country at the Sydney Town Hall for the 2000 Olympics.  Wikipedia Link and for those who missed this talk tune into this feature which was produced by the ABC.

    Just wanted to find out how much a returning boomerang is as a gift for overseas. I was out at Bare Island last sunday and found out you were not there. The kite man told me to ask for a good one. If the price is right where can I buy a ‘good one’ I have thrown them before so know the correct way….into the wind basically.
    Thanx in anticipation.

    familiarity regarding unexpected feelings.
